Texas Civil Rights Project

The Texas Civil Rights Project uses legal advocacy to empower Texas communities and create policy change.

Why We Invested

The Texas Civil Rights Project (TCRP) is leading a number of pro-voter efforts in the state of Texas. TCRP is leading a statewide coalition to increase compliance with Texas Election Code Section 13.046, which requires high school principals (or their designees) to serve as deputy voter registrars, and requires that they distribute voter registration forms to students who are or who will be 18 years old during a given school year. In addition, this grant will support TCRP’s ongoing work to ensure state compliance with the National Voter Registration Act.

Democracy Fund is proud to support the Texas Civil Rights Project as they work to increase compliance with Texas and federal laws.
